GOVERNOR HICKENLOOPER ISSUED EXECUTIVE ORDER

Newsroom/El Comercio de Colorado

John Hickenlooper, governor of Colorado, prohibited the use of State resources to separate immigrant families that arrive at the southern border of the country. Hickenlooper issued an executive order that shows his “strong disagreement” with the policies of the White House. Hickenlooper stated, “there is unanimity in condemning these activities,” and he emphasized the unusual wide consensus and sense of urgency in doing this.

Hickenlooper mentioned that several groups, including religious leaders, mental health professionals, academics, politicians and people from diverse backgrounds oppose the decision by the Trump administration to separate the undocumented families that are detained on the border. According to this executive order, no money, equipment or personnel from Colorado will be used to separate parents from their children just because the parents are undocumented.

Zero tolerance

The zero-tolerance policy is based on two elements. The first one is to charge the adults who cross the border with no documents with a crime. Then, the second step is to separate their children from the detainees. Current laws prohibit the housing of minors with adults who are accused of committing a crime. According to date from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), about 2,000 minors have been separated from their parents.

DHS didn’t provide details on the ages of the detainees and the separated minors. It is public knowledge the dramatic situation these children are going through. They are being held at old stores morphed into temporary detention centers. In other cases, minors are being held on premises that are divided by cages or on tents in outdoor settings.
